Gypsy, Bohemian, Free Spirit. As someone who never really wanted to “fit in” and rather, make her own way, Mali has done just that. Growing up immersed in a very creative & artistic family, Mali’s love of exotic clothing was established at a young age. Her Aunt was a missionary in Nepal & Kathmandu and regularly sent her elaborate silk tunics, kaftans & Indian jewelry & accessories that were unseen in the US at that time. Her love of color and style was evident in her artworks, clothing and home décor items that she designed while also modeling and collaborating in fashion shows, films and events.
Her move to Miami brought a new passion into her life…Resort Wear. The tropical temperatures and international Jet Set location showed her a more colorful and free flowing style of dress that included dazzling embellishments that spoke to her gypsy soul. Fusing her artistic mind with her experience of more than 20 years both in fashion and in the beauty industry she created LUXE ISLE; a sparkling line of Island & Resort Wear sourced from exotic locations all over the world that embody the vibrancy & playfulness of Mali, Miami and the Caribbean.
Mali travels around South Florida with her colorful flowing embellished kaftans, beautiful beaded silk tunics, sparkling swimwear and kimonos to many wellness, art, fashion & charitable events. LUXE ISLE has been a part of Miami Fashion Week, Fashion Happy Hour, WellFest Delray, PurSol Fashion Collective for Miami Swim Week, Escape Miami Style Lounge at Swim Week, Art Basel & Wynwood Life. You can find her collection at Myra & Co. in the Sunset area of South Miami, the Joy West Collection in Nantucket & Aspen, USA, Shoptopia in Quito, Equador and Mangini Studio in Lima, Peru. She also offers personalized styling service for clients in the South Florida area for photo shoots and special events needs. Email inquiries to email@example.com.
